Emerson Selected to Automate Longview Power Plant

Emerson Process Management has been named main automation contractor at the Longview Power plant in Maidsville, WV. Longview chose Emerson in part for their ability to complete the project in an accelerated 13-month timeframe, with commissioning slated for June 2015. Projects of similar scope and complexity typically take 18 to 24 months to complete.

Commissioned in 2011, the 695-MW, coal-fired supercritical unit serves Morgantown and surrounding communities. Although more challenging to control because of the high temperatures and pressures involved, supercritical technologies can boost the efficiency of coal-based electricity generation by approximately 40% while reducing carbon and other emissions.
